3D laser scanning

Using Faro scanners

 

75-Faro x130 State-of-the-art instruments increasingly used in measured building surveys.  Typically with less time on site compared to traditional survey methods, far more detail is recorded.  The instrument provides a point cloud that is comparable to a measurable 3-D photograph made of three-dimensional pixels.

 

Uses

  • Building refurbishment base drawings
  • “As is” or “as built” drawings
  • Area and volume checks
  • Detailed plant room surveys
  • Lease plans
  • BIM modelling

Key advantages

  • Typically less time on site
  • Far more detail captured
  • Levels can be taken anywhere
  • Measurements can be taken from any two points
  • Ideal for highly detailed and heritage buildings
  • Building exterior and topo measured at the same time

Deliverables

FROM THE POINT CLOUD

  • Plans, elevations and sections
  • 3-D views of the building is taken from any angle
  • Traced line drawing plans, elevations and sections
  • An E57 Point cloud file for use in client’s 3-D software

FROM A BIM COMPLIANT MODEL

  • Plans, elevations and sections
  • 3-D views of the building is taken from any angle
  • Sketch up models

How a scanner works

The instrument provides a point cloud that is comparable to a measurable 3-D photograph made of three-dimensional pixels. It is a non-intrusive instrument taking millions of measurements in a 360° sphere around itself. These individual point cloud spheres are then combined together in a specialist  software. The resulting overall point cloud per floor is then imported into ArchiCAD a 3-D architectural design software. The building outline and details can then be either traced in 2 dimensions or modelled in 3 dimensions. Levels can be measured from any point in the point cloud. Dimensions can be taken  between any two points.
